In my opinion, the worse thing about the online Zope book is that is seems to 
assume that you already understand the basic Zope concepts, even when 
introducing them. In other words: the book do a poor job to explain Zope's 
basic architecture. For someone just coming to Zope after hearing great stuff 
about it, it's truly disappointing.

That said, I think that Zope is so different from it's competition as to make 
an easy explanation rather difficult to come up with. It's hard to make 
comparisons or analogies. But that's is Zope's greatest advantage also - it 
is unique in many senses.
